're getting new word this situation in the region of the ukraine is getting tenser by the moment. just receiving word that russian aircraft carrier carrying 2,000 military croups landed near the crimean port. and the russians are building up troops along the entire eastern border. we will keep you posted. john mccain reacting to that, and, senator, obviously this thing is sort of building by the moment. what do we do? it was predictable and predicted. putin has very little regard for the united states. he is committed and believed in with all his being that ukraine is part of russian. crimea has -- where major soviet naval base on the black sea is, and we could never geoff up and -- never give up and we're seeing an intervention that is deeply disturbing and alarming, and i don't think he thinks the united states is going to do much, given when he looks around and sees his troops in georgia and seeing american weakness and withdrawal. what do we do now? i think we have to, first of all, condemn it. second, get the immediately as quickly as possible, get the ukrainian economy going agai
ukraine, because there is now the u.s.-russian situation. how can russia say it's not involved when it is literally giving asylum to viktor yanukovych? >> all along, the russians have been saying that they're not involved, but certainly they clearly are. they've always thought the ukraine was part of their sphere of influence, propping it up with money stolen that they now say tens of billions of dollar may have been taken out of the country by the ruling yanukovych administration and they want those assets frozen in geneva. they may we will get it, the swiss saying that they will look into that, possibly freezing the assets, but also, the ukrainians saying that they want yanukovych extra do id back to kiev. >> this does not bode well for people who are students of history who watched the collapse of the soviet union. >> absolutely. vladimir putin is very concerned about ukraine for a variety of reasons, not least of which because of the geopolitical situation but internally in russia is keeping a close eye on what happened in ukraine. it's not that long ago we saw thousands of russ
out to blame the west for the situation that the ukraine is in. >> fully place responsibility upon those who brought our country to this crisis and i would say to this cast disaster. they are to blame for that and those who now in power and those of who today command them in my dawn, invisible, visible, behind the scenes and the west, the united states of america, who patrons. >> that echoes what we have been hearing in russia. we have heard the foreign ministry and kremlin saying that the crisis is sponsored by the west. that is condemnation in russia about what is happening in ukraine. there are deep concerns. russia assist militaryized along the border and thinking that is a lot of rattling and those exercises were already orders, never theless it is making people nervous and nato a watching those exercises. in addition to the border regions and the relationship between russia and ukraine, that is a question of viktor yanukovich's economic holdings and we have heard that geneva is going to freeze some of his assets and the standing government is saying they have looked at the bo

last week that they would not make new loans in ukraine until the situation clarified they're watching it closely but meanwhile business has already been eight seems to be a normal shape and people are paying their loans on time so far. what you think the risk is of contagion from the ukrainian situation economically. we'll have to look at it in terms of what's going on at the grassroots ukrainian businessman at the same problems as is my math everywhere. if the paper suppliers have to pay your employees to give credit to your customers. if you can't pay your employees with them they don't work they do on the street mobs get worse and the bad feelings get worse so far there has not been problems of mass non payment of employees in the private sector problems have been in the government sector people are building one of the ethical issues palaces so they weren't being paid and walked off the job. the kind of thing can become the snowball but were worried about that you just mentioned this ukraine were to default on its debts if ukraine where to run out of money how much of it without th
